Half term projects
We have exciting projects lined up for each of our four Youth Companies.
Spring Half Term 2018
All Step Company dancers are invited to take part in Into Dance Making, a one-week choreographic residency running from 12 to 16 February 2018.
Throughout the week, participants will be guided through the creative process by a guest choreographer in order to create a solo or duet. With their support, the choreographers and dancers will be challenged to develop their ideas and explore different ways to generate movement while considering how to structure material, make the best use of space; and the relationship between the work and the audience.
Into Dance Making will be a supportive environment for the group to analyse and provide constructive feedback to each other. This will help the choreographers and dancers develop new skills in addition to the development of their new work.
At the end of the week, we will have an informal sharing of the completed solos and duets. These will then be performed at a range of events including performed at the Spring Sharings and as part of Step Live 2018.
Summer Half Term 2018
Nominated dancers from our schools will be given the opportunity to take part in Open Step, a series of workshops leading to the creation of a dance piece for Step LIVE 2018. Inclusive Company dancers will work with a guest choreographer to create an exciting dance piece that will be performed at Step LIVE 2018.
